The Museum at Prairiefire is a non-profit (501c3) educational organization and relies on annual memberships and philanthropic donations to fund its programs, exhibitions and activities. Your contribution allows us to present rotating state-of-the-art exhibitions from the American Museum of Natural History; to engage children and their caretakers in our permanent halls, the Discovery Room and other experiences; to develop engaging public programs including workshops,
lectures, film screenings, tours and more; to welcome thousands of school children on field trips each year that are supported by standards based materials and engaging facilitation by Museum staff; and to be a community resource for all those interested in science, natural history and culture – whether it be focused on our local region or the world at large. Your support today allows us to impact children and grownups now, and to shape our organization for the future.
Funded primarily by private support and earned revenue, the Museum at Prairiefire is a federally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Your financial contribution is fully tax deductible.
Every MAP member makes a difference. Membership support ensures the Museum can continue to create a place for understanding and celebration of the natural history and culture in our region and around the world.
Members receive free, unlimited admission to the entire Museum at Prairiefire. Members also receive discounts on additional tickets, the Museum Store, invitation to special events, lectures and more.
The Museum is a unique venue where volunteers inspire wonder, discovery and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds. From greeting guests to creating memorable hands-on experiences, there are many important ways in which volunteers contribute, making them one of the Museum at Prairiefire’s richest resources!
